Beautiful S4. My buddy has a built 2.7 that makes 640AWHP. Scariest car I’ve ever been in.I'm always going to have a soft spot for wagons. If there are two models with the same engines and one is a wagon...I'll 100% always take the wagon. I had a B5 S4 wagon and still have a Mk6 wagon. The reason I went with the GTI over the Golf wagon is because of the engine and interior. I got to drive a wagon with a tune and I wasn't really impressed with the power. The stock 2.0 in the GTI feels better than a 1.8 with a tune. The interior of the GTI also way better. If the GW was available with even just the 2.0...I would have got the GW. If the Golf R wagon is available in the states...it would have been a no brainer for me.
My S4 wagon.

Oh hell yes I know where you stand. The MK7 was just so right IMO, and I had always loved GTIs (and GLIs) since the late '80s, that I had to pull the trigger on it. I had been soooo close a few times in the past. I almost bought a beater '84 GTI for $800 back in 1999 (no ragrets...) and I tried to buy an immaculate '88 GLI w/ the Recaros in `96 but had exactly $17.50 to put towards it at the time. I am currently trying to convince the wifey that a wagon would be better than a new SUV to replace our aging Pilot. I am losing, but trying. Thankfully she said we could add a Miata to the fleet for a daily runabout. Glad our wives like to row through the gears!You know I'm a wagon fan Sean! I'm still kind of surprised you went with a GTI instead of a GSW when you sold your FXT. Here's a shot of mine from my Deal's Gap trip last October.
I love wagons, but to this point have never owned one. I do know for a fact if I reach a point in my life that I am forced to get a bigger car for hauling kids and whatnot, it'll be a wagon and not an SUV
Side not, and possibly a dumb question, do the GSW and AT have more rear passenger room than a Golf or GTI? Or are the passenger dimensions the same?
